Vintage Pens: 5761 Parker Moderne
Era: 1930-1939   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $299.99
Canadian-made Parker Moderne sets aren't easy to come by, especially when they are in this amazingly good condition. Compared to the matching pencil, this bronze, white and blue fountain pen is only a shade or two discolored from absolute perfection. The colors match so well, it is strange to think that no one has tried to replicate them since the 1930s. No cracks, but heavy brassing on the pocket clip. Our vintage pen is fully restored with a new ink sac. The nib writes a fairly smooth extra-fine line with a touch of flex for some line variation, if you go easy on the 14k gold. The pencil works well. Twist the tail cap to advance and retract the 1.1mm lead. Pen measures 11.3cm capped.
